Overview

Ten essays, exploring the implications of the growing demands of indigenous people for politico-juridical recognition in Latin American countries, are presented by Sieder (politics, Institute of Latin American Studies, U. of London). Collectively, they recognize a gap between the recognition of these demands and actual implementation, explore the barriers to implementation, and discuss some of the problematic issues raised by passing indigenous rights legislation. Regional and country studies are both included, encompassing questions of constitutional reform, educational reform, World Bank programs, and the politics of state formation. Annotation c.
